Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Montgomery, AL)

female

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — A Montgomery County Deputy District Attorney had requested the bond of a man accused of strangling his wife be revoked just days before he shot and critically injured her.

After shooting his wife Tuesday afternoon, LaMartin Robinson, 39, turned the gun on himself, according to Montgomery Police.

According to the bond revocation order filed and granted June 18, Robinson had been charged with strangulating his estranged wife and later violated an order of protection.

Even though Robinson’s bond had been revoked he hadn’t been picked up by police or turned himself in.

Montgomery Police released Tuesday afternoon that a 39-year-old male, later identified as Robinson, shot his 37-year-old wife in a dispute in the 3600 block of Carriage Oaks Court at around 1:20 p.m. Both were transported to a local hospital, where the male later died.

Investigators have determined that during the course of that confrontation, the husband shot the wife and then turned the gun on himself. The wife is currently listed in critical condition.

Killed – Crystal Anderson (Pahokee, FL)

Crystal Anderson

While searching for a mother whose car was found abandoned just miles away from her place of work, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s detectives are also investigating the murder of a woman who babysat the missing woman’s children.

A sheriff’s spokeswoman said Tuesday that the cases are not related. However, documents obtained by the Palm Beach Post on Tuesday show they may be connected.

Deborah Ann Jessie, 23, was last seen at a friend’s home in Pahokee on Sunday afternoon. By Tuesday morning, sheriff’s deputies found her car abandoned at the Palm Beach Golf Center at 7700 Military Trail in Riviera Beach, which is two miles away from The Family Dollar, where Jessie works.

It was not immediately known where Jessie’s children are, however, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said they are not in danger.

“Jessie was in the process of gaining a Domestic Violence Injunction against a former boyfriend,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Teri Barbera wrote. “Detectives are extremely concerned for her safety.”

ORIGINAL POST: The 30-year-old Pahokee man who investigators arrested on a battery charge keeping him in jail while Palm Beach County Sheriff’s detectives worked a missing persons case and a death investigation has been indicted for the two Pahokee women’s murders.

A Palm Beach County grand jury today indicted Jammy Washington on two counts of first-degree murder. Detectives believe he killed Deborah Ann Jessie, 23, and her children’s babysitter Crystal Anderson, 57.

Jessie was last seen June 23 at a friend’s house in Pahokee. Anderson was found shot to death at her Pahokee home June 24.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Jacquelyn Johnson (St. Peter, MN)

Jacquelyn Johnson

ST. PETER, Minn. — St. Peter police say a shooting that killed a man and a woman was an apparent murder-suicide.

Forty-eight-year-old Jacquelyn Marie Johnson of St. Peter and 53-year-old Joel Bruce Reineke of Kasota were found dead in Johnson’s house at about 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Double Murder/Suicide – Killed – Annetta Buchanan (Peyton, CO)

female

For more than 40 miles and across two counties, El Paso County deputies chased after a man as he sped away from the Peyton home where two bodies were discovered on June 24.

When deputies finally caught up to the man in Lincoln County, he crashed his car–and shot himself.

The chase began Monday afternoon after the Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call regarding a possible shooting on the 19000 block of Oasis Avenue, near Peyton Highway and Judge Orr Road. The call was received after police say the alleged suspect, now identified as James Buchanan, 53, called an out-of-state relative to tell them he had shot and killed his own wife and his mother.

When deputies arrived on scene, they found two dead women inside the home–and saw James Buchanan drive off. Those women were later identified as the man’s wife, Annetta Buchanan, 50, and his mother, Grace Buchanan, 89.

The El Paso County Coroner’s Office conducted autopsies on Annetta and Grace Buchanan and determined the cause of death for both women was a gunshot wound. Their deaths have been deemed a homicide.

An autopsy on James Buchanan confirmed he also died from a gunshot wound. His manner of death has been ruled a suicide.

According to investigations, officers were called to 19870 Oasis Avenue at 4:15 p.m. on a report of a shooting.

Killed – Sarah Harrington (Round Rock, TX)

Sarah Harrington

ROUND ROCK — Round Rock police have released the name of the woman killed by officers over the weekend. Officer Dee Carver with RRPD tells KVUE the woman is 31-year-old Sarah Harrington.

The woman was shot just before midnight on Sunday, June 23, in downtown Round Rock. Police say three officers with RRPD had no choice but to shoot and kill Harrington on the plaza, breaking glass in a building nearby.

RRPD says it all started when a woman called  911 with a cell phone to report that a woman who had just left a bar on Main Street had a gun. Police say nothing unusual happened inside the bar.

When officers arrived, they found the woman about a block away from the bar. Police say she told them she had a weapon but would not give it up. Officers then used pepper balls and stun guns to try and get her to surrender the weapon.

When Harrington pulled out her gun and pointed it at officers, police say they had to fire their weapons, shooting and killing her.

Killed – Jessica Gonzalez (Santa Ana, CA)

Jessica Gonzalez

ORANGE, Calif. (KABC) — The female suspect and victim in the fatal Orange shooting were romantically involved, according to a family member.

The daughter of the victim, 44-year-old Jennifer Roberta Solorio, told Eyewitness News that her mother and the suspect, 35-year-old Jessica Gonzalez, were involved in a romantic relationship for 13 years. She said the two were having problems recently, but she does not know what possible reason Gonzalez would have to resort to such violence.

Police say Gonzalez, from Santa Ana, shot and killed Solorio outside an apartment complex in Orange Thursday around 3 p.m.

Orange County District Attorney’s Office investigators determined that Santa Ana police officers Gary Ayala and Saul Esquivel acted reasonably during a June 23 confrontation that led to the death of Jessica Gonzalez, who at the time of her death was being sought by authorities in connection with the killing of a woman days earlier in an Orange neighborhood, a letter released Tuesday outlining the results of the investigation said.

Fearing for his safety, Ayala told investigators, he yelled “Gun!” and began shooting his service weapon at the garage wall to provide cover as he ran across the alley toward Esquivel’s car.

Esquivel told investigators that he saw Ayala run across the alley, heard him yell “Gun!” multiple times and saw him fire several rounds toward the garage. The report said Gonzalez also ran across the alley, to within 5 feet of Ayala, at which point Esquivel pulled out his handgun and fired a dozen rounds at Gonzalez, who fell to the ground. Ayala said that once Gonzalez was down, he saw her reach for something with her left hand, and he fired two additional rounds at her.

Gonzalez was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where she was pronounced dead. Authorities reportedly found the replica handgun under her body, as well as a syringe in her bra that “appeared to be filled with blood.”

The police shooting happened in the 800 block of South Townsend Street on Sunday about 8 a.m., police said.

Killed – Rachel Harrington (Memphis, TN)

female

MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) – Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies have a suspect in custody following the fatal shooting of a mother and the kidnapping of her daughter from their home in East Memphis Sunday morning.

Deputies say shots were fired at a home on Barkshire Drive early Sunday morning.

The homeowner, 41-year-old Rachel Harrington, was killed and her daughter was kidnapped.

According to Shelby County Sheriff’s spokesperson Chip Washington, “When we arrived on the scene we found an individual in the house we believe to be the victim’s mother had been shot and we believe that the estranged boyfriend shot her.”

Investigators identified that boyfriend as 26-year-old Brandon Lee Spicer, who has also gone by the name Brandon Banks. Officers say he recently broke up with 25-year-old Tyranny Boyd.

Around 5 Sunday morning, Boyd called the sheriff’s office and said that her ex was trying to break into her house.

Deputies say that the bedroom window on the house is apparently where the suspect tried to break in. The screen has been torn off and there’s debris on the ground.

Investigators say after getting into the home Spicer shot and killed Boyd’s mother. He killed two of the family’s dogs as well, and then kidnapped Boyd at gunpoint.

Deputies put out an all points bulletin for Spicer. After about 8 hours on the run, Boyd was able to call a relative and tell them where her ex was keeping her.

Minutes later SWAT officers found them at The Trails Apartment complex located at Mt. Moriah and Kirby Parkway and arrested Spicer. Spicer is now locked up at the CJC facing murder and kidnapping charges.

His ex-girlfriend, Tyranny Boyd, was not hurt.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Natalie Monique Carter-Toney (Waxahachie, TX)

Natalie Monique Carter-Toney

Police are investigating a murder-suicide that left a Waxahachie couple dead over the weekend.

Witnesses say Pete Ledesma barricaded himself in a Ferris Avenue home on Saturday night before killing his girlfriend, 32-year-old Natalie Toney.

Ledesma, 27, then shot himself as his brother, who heard the first shot, tried to force his way into the bedroom. Several other family members were at the home during the shooting.

Both Ledesma and Toney died at the scene. It’s unclear whether the couple had a history of domestic violence.

Waxahachie Police were called to a residence in the 1500 block of Ferris Ave. at approximately 9:45 p.m. Saturday, June 22.

A caller reported two persons had been shot there. Officers found two people in a bedroom that were deceased on their arrival. They were taken to the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office. The dead are 32-year-old Natalie Toney and 27-year-old Pete Ledesma.  A handgun was recovered at the scene.

Triple Murder – Killed – Ana Cruz (Roxbury, MA)

Ana Cruz

Left: Ana Cruz; Right: Felix Garcia

The party in the Roxbury apartment complex had been going on for several hours when at least one gunman walked through the door and began firing, according to two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.

Two men and a woman, all in their 20s, were killed Saturday morning at the party on Intervale Street, in a section of the city that police consider a hot spot for violent crime and gang activity.

Police identified the victims as Ana Cruz, 22, Felix Garcia, 22, and Brian Tirado, 23. All three lived in Dorchester.

By 4:18 a.m., Cruz, 22; Garcia, 20; and Brian Tirado, 23 were fatally shot inside the apartment, police said. It was the second triple homicide in the city since last August, when three women were fatally shot as they sat in a car on Harlem Street in Dorchester, a crime that has not yet been solved.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Quenay Cox (Paterson, NJ)

Quenay Cox

A 20-year-old Paterson woman was killed and three other people were injured early Saturday when two gunmen fired multiple rounds at the intersection of Park Avenue and East 22nd Street in Paterson’s Fifth Ward, police said.

The four people hit by the gunfire around 2:30 a.m. were taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment, and the 20-year-old Paterson woman died from her injuries there. She had been shot in the abdomen. Police did not release her name.

Police said it is not clear if any of the four victims were the target of the gunfire. Detectives are currently canvassing the area for possible witnesses and any surveillance video footage that may have captured the incident.

The other victims included two Paterson women. One, aged 39, was shot in the upper chest, and remains in stable condition. The other, 21, was hit in the left hip. She was treated and released.

The fourth victim was a 48-year-old man from Plainfield. He suffered gunshot wounds in the right hand, right leg and groin. His condition is serious but stable.

Killed – Amanda Abbott (Davenport, IA)

Amanda Abbott1

Authorities arrested a man in connection with a shooting that claimed the life of a 25-year-old Davenport woman early Saturday.

Albert “AJ” Coats, 22, was taken into custody at the Highcliffs Estates Trailer Park in Milan, just hours after Amanda Abbott suffered a fatal gunshot wound.

Coats, also of Davenport, was taken to the Milan Police Department and then was transferred to the Rock Island County Jail. Coats remained in the jail Saturday night, awaiting extradition on warrants charging him with second-degree murder, felon in possession of a firearm and theft-third degree possession of stolen property, according to a news release issued by Assistant Davenport Police Chief Donald Schaeffer.

Police said they have the weapon used in the homicide.

Schaeffer said Coats was found at the trailer park with the help of the Milan and Rock Island police departments and the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department. He initially refused to come out for a “short period of time,” but eventually was taken into custody, Schaeffer added.

At 1:02 a.m. Saturday, the Scott County Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call in reference to a female who had been shot at 1825 W. 1st St., Schaeffer said.

Officers found Abbott dead at the scene.

Friends contended the shooting was an accident, and that Abbott and Coats were friends.  One woman said Coats was trying to get a stuck bullet out of the chamber of the gun when it accidentally went off.

Double Murder – Killed – Erica Lankford (Mobile, AL)

Erica Lankford1

SEMMES, Alabama — Police were still piecing together the events that led to the double homicide of a married couple in Semmes Saturday.

Their red brick colonial-style home, located at the end of a cul de sac at 6797 Kings Branch Drive South, was found burning by a family member late Friday, officials from the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office said.

The bodies of Erica Lankford, 43, and Steven Lankford, 57, were discovered inside, police spokesman Lt. Paul Burch said.

Each of their bodies bore multiple injuries, Burch said.

SEMMES, Alabama — The man charged with murder early this morning after a married couple was found dead in their burning house Friday night is accused of stalking one of the victim’s sisters, who had an order of protection against him before authorities discovered the gruesome scene.

Gigada Pearson, 52, was arrested and charged with first-degree arson, aggravated stalking and two counts of murder. He is accused of killing Erica Lankford, 43, and her husband Steven Lankford, 57, before setting their home on fire.

One neighbor tells News 5 she saw a white trucj pull into the driveway just after 9 p.m. She says the driver and Steve went through the back gate, into the backyard. A few moments later she heard four gunshots and saw the truck pull away.

Killed – Jennifer Solorio (Orange, CA)

Jennifer Solorio

ORANGE, Calif. (KABC) — The female suspect and victim in the fatal Orange shooting were romantically involved, according to a family member.

The daughter of the victim, 44-year-old Jennifer Roberta Solorio, told Eyewitness News that her mother and the suspect, 35-year-old Jessica Gonzalez, were involved in a romantic relationship for 13 years. She said the two were having problems recently, but she does not know what possible reason Gonzalez would have to resort to such violence.

Police say Gonzalez, from Santa Ana, shot and killed Solorio outside an apartment complex in Orange Thursday around 3 p.m.

Orange County District Attorney’s Office investigators determined that Santa Ana police officers Gary Ayala and Saul Esquivel acted reasonably during a June 23 confrontation that led to the death of Jessica Gonzalez, who at the time of her death was being sought by authorities in connection with the killing of a woman days earlier in an Orange neighborhood, a letter released Tuesday outlining the results of the investigation said.

Fearing for his safety, Ayala told investigators, he yelled “Gun!” and began shooting his service weapon at the garage wall to provide cover as he ran across the alley toward Esquivel’s car.

Esquivel told investigators that he saw Ayala run across the alley, heard him yell “Gun!” multiple times and saw him fire several rounds toward the garage. The report said Gonzalez also ran across the alley, to within 5 feet of Ayala, at which point Esquivel pulled out his handgun and fired a dozen rounds at Gonzalez, who fell to the ground. Ayala said that once Gonzalez was down, he saw her reach for something with her left hand, and he fired two additional rounds at her.

Gonzalez was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where she was pronounced dead. Authorities reportedly found the replica handgun under her body, as well as a syringe in her bra that “appeared to be filled with blood.”

The police shooting happened in the 800 block of South Townsend Street on Sunday about 8 a.m., police said.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Rose Geisert (Homosassa, FL)

Rose Geisert

HOMOSASSA, Fla – Citrus County deputies say they are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide in the Sugarmill Woods area of Homosassa.

It occurred Wednesday night around 9 p.m. at 52 Pine  Street in Homosassa.

According to deputies, they found Rose Geisert and Ernest Geisert on the bathroom floor with apparent gunshot wounds.  Both were in their 80s.  Deputies say they found a firearm under Ernest’s body.

Deputies on the scene say a friend who was already inside the residence helping one of the descendants from an apparent fall earlier heard muffled bangs which she thought was possibly Mrs. Geisert falling again.

The friend, according to deputies, went into the bathroom to check on the couple and found them lying on the bathroom floor with a large amount of blood around them.  She ran to the next door neighbor’s house to call 911, deputies said.

Killed – Pregnant Woman – Da’Lyne Foster (Dayton, OH)

Da’Lyne Foster

A baby boy, who was delivered after his mother was shot to death by a stray bullet, was in critical condition Thursday — the day his mother’s doctors planned to induce labor.

The boy had not been named and his grandmother has been at his side since his birth, Dayton homicide Sgt. Richard Blommel said. The boy is the son of Da’Lyne Foster, 27, who was a bystander during an escalating series of physical confrontations around the DeSoto Bass housing project near Stewart Street on Wednesday.

The original disturbance started between two women who lived in DeSoto Bass. One had just moved in with her boyfriend and the other was his ex-girlfriend, Blommel said.

As the conflict escalated, participants began calling in friends and relatives and an unruly crowd formed.

A police report examined by the Dayton Daily News showed that officers were called to 24 Bragg Place about 7:18 p.m. on the report that “people were pushing one another and getting ready to fight.” As officers drove to the scene, they were told that some people had guns, the report said.

When police arrived, no one was physically fighting, but some people were yelling at each other. After the officers calmed people down, they were approached by residents from 24 Bragg and 40 Bragg, the report said.

Officer Jacob Rillo reported that he ordered both Martin and Boyd to leave the area for the night to prevent further fights. Neither woman expressed any interest in prosecuting the other for the fight, and Martin was “just upset about her window being broken,” the report said.

Just before 9 p.m., several people called 911 to report Foster’s shooting. One caller said Foster was hit “right near the heart. And she’s pregnant.” Another reported that “they were shooting in the air.”

Foster, who was past term and scheduled to be induced today, was pronounced dead at 9:19 p.m. Wednesday. The baby was delivered via C-section sometime overnight at Miami Valley Hospital’s Emergency and Trauma Center by an emergency and trauma team, according to hospital officials

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Zakiya Lawson (Charleston, NC)

Zakiya Lawson1

A 26-year-old man who authorities say shot and killed a 34-year-old woman before taking his own life Tuesday morning was released from jail last month for allegedly assaulting the woman earlier this year.

According to North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor, police responded to a home in the 4600 block of Thoroughbred Drive around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday after receiving reports of a domestic disturbance between Williams and Lawson, who both live at the home.

Once at the scene, Pryor said officers were able to clear several people from inside of the residence.

Nisbet said Lawson was running in and out of the door, shouting that “he had a gun.”  Nisbet said officers tried to get Lawson to say outside, but she kept going back in.  Officers were also trying to call him out of the residence, according to the coroner.

The female went back in once more, and when the officers were getting ready to breach the door, shots were heard from inside the home, according to Nisbet.

Once inside, officers located Williams and Lawson.

Coroner Chris Nisbet said Williams shot and killed Lawson before he turned the gun on himself and took his own life Tuesday morning.

Cassaundra Pell

PLAINWELL, MI –It appears that a young man who argued with his girlfriend Monday evening shot her shortly after midnight before turning the weapon on himself, authorities say.

Cassaundra Pell, 23, and Robert Burnham-Pratt, 24, died as a result of gunshot wounds in their home  in the 500 block of 10th Street in Gun Plain Township, according to a news release from the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office.

Allegan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the deaths.

Dispatch received a call from a person who had heard a gunshot at the residence on 10th St. around 12:19 a.m. after earlier witnessing the couple arguing.

PLAINWELL, MI – Last fall, a Plainwell Public Safety officer stopped Rob Pratt after residents spotted the 24-year-old openly carrying a shotgun as he walked his dog in town.

“Just exercising rights, Mr. Pell, Officer Pell,” Pratt said to the officer in a 10-minute, 43-second video Pratt posted in October on YouTube.

The officer in the video, James Pell, is the father of Cassaundra Pell, 23.

Early Tuesday, Pratt and Cassaundra Pell were found dead inside a house Cassaundra Pell was renting on 10th Street north of Plainwell.

Allegan County sheriff’s deputies found the bodies while responding to a report of a domestic dispute. Investigators said they believe Pratt, Pell’s boyfriend, used a shotgun to kill Pell and then turned the gun on himself.

Killed – Nancy Kovach (Comstock, MI)

Nancy Kovach

KALAMAZOO, MI – In the moments before he shot and killed his wife, John Kovach planned to instead kill himself, until she confronted him and called him a coward, he said.

“I went away from her and the kids, went in the bedroom, got my pistol, put it to my mouth,” Kovach told Kalamazoo County Circuit Judge Alexander C. Lipsey on Thursday in pleading guilty to second-degree murder and felony use of a firearm in the June 17 slaying of his wife, Nancy Kovach, at the couple’s Comstock Township home.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to the residence at 8:50 p.m. Monday to respond to a domestic dispute and found Nancy Kovach already dead. Matyas did not know who made the 911 call. The family lives at 6907 E. Main St. in Comstock Township.

Nancy Kovach was shot by a handgun. Matyas did not know how many times she was shot.

Killed – Alyssa Christine Smith (Ferndale, WA)

Alyssa Christine Smith

FERNDALE — A stray bullet from a group of men target shooting more than a half-mile away may have been what struck and killed a 23-year-old woman celebrating Father’s Day at a family backyard barbecue, police said Monday.

policetapeThe Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office on Monday arrested two men among the group of five who were  target shooting for investigation of illegal possession of firearms. They posted bail later in day.

The woman’s father called 911 desperately seeking help for his mortally wounded daughter. Neighbors say they heard several gunshots even before the woman was struck. When cops rushed to the 6100 block of Gadwa Road, they heard gunfire coming from a distance.

Smith, of Bellingham, had been attending a family cookout at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, June 16, when her father called 911 to report bullets flying over the treetops near Gadwa Road, west of the Nooksack River.

Smith and her father searched for the source of the gunfire, hoping to get the attention of whoever was shooting in their direction, said Whatcom County Undersheriff Jeff Parks. Eventually, they gave up and turned back.

As Smith headed to the house, a bullet – fired from about a half-mile away – struck her in the chest, according to the sheriff’s office.

FERNDALE – The stray bullet that killed a Ferndale woman at a Father’s Day barbecue came from an AK-47 fired from across the Nooksack River, according to charges filed Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 12.

Nick Adam Zylstra faces one count of first-degree manslaughter for the death of Alyssa Christine Smith, 23, a graduate of Ferndale High School and a medical receptionist.
